Transform your practice to heal anxiety, stress and trauma, sleep, eating disorders, and addiction and pain with this Intensive Workshop.
The unconscious is a reservoir of potential, and hypnosis is the way to access that potential. Neurological pathways function automatically and can be engaged and used to help heal disorders that might be difficult to do deliberately and consciously. By working indirectly and unconsciously in hypnosis, you bypass your client’s conscious limitations and enlist resources to help resolve entrenched problems.
- Go into self-hypnosis
- Work with a partner to do a pre-trance interview to discover abilities and help for individualizing in trance
- Induce trance

This is your opportunity for personal self-transformation as you also learn about hypnotic techniques that can be applied for clients.
If you are new to hypnosis, you will gain the skills you need to start using hypnosis in your practice. And if you are an experienced hypnotherapist, you will add innovative methods to enhance your work. With the latest research, case examples, guided trance experiences, opportunities to work with trance induction, helpful handouts, protocols, and a clear understanding of hypnotic effects in the brain, this workshop will inform, uplift, and transform.
